Our Family Oriented Approach

To understand an individual, it is important to understand the unique system surrounding them. We believe that family is an integral part of any child's healthy growth and development. For this reason, we involve family members to some extent in  therapy. 

In most instances, therapy works best when the whole family, community, and school system collaborate. We work to help families build the confidence, trust, and skills needed to effectively navigate through the challenges the individual is facing.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is focused on improving the social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties experienced by many people throughout their lives. Through therapy, you can learn to manage these difficulties in a way that improves mood, behavior, and overall life satisfaction. At KPS, we specialize in providing psychotherapy for children, teens, and young adults with autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental differences. We also provide psychotherapy for mood and anxiety disorders.  We incorporate a unique approach by including visual supports and parent/caregiver involvement.

Our clinicians are trained in a variety of different evidence-based interventions, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT),  behavioral therapy, play therapy, and more. Each of our clinicians have experience working with neurodiverse individuals, as well as those experiencing co-occurring mental health challenges, such as anxiety and depression.

Teen Social Skills Groups

We believe some of the most effective therapy sessions take place within a group context and that parent participation is an essential component to effective group therapy for teens

We lead social skills groups for verbally-fluent, neurodiverse teens. In the past we have run gender inclusive groups as well as gender-identity specific groups. How our skills groups are designed:

  • UCLA PEERS model

  • Girl's group adaptation created by Dr. Kimel

  • Facing Your Fears Model for the treatment of anxiety in teens with ASD

Social skills group enrollment is on a rolling basis. We typically offer  8-10-week groups in the spring and fall, but will offer additional groups based on client interest.
